I feel like there is a massive stigma around FAT! From someone who has come from having no understanding around fat other than a mind-set of “eat fat get fat, there is no such thing as good fat”, to someone who is now using GOOD fats as one of my main energy sources, I feel and see the difference! I can tell you now (I have literally tried this)… A week of eating bad and ugly fats, I feel sluggish, nauseas and bloated, but a week of still eating fats, but this time the good kind, I am full of energy (some days I didn’t even rely on the good ol’ triple shot coffee for a kick), skin is clearer and less oily and next to no bloat (depending on my water intake). Food is literally your body’s fuel!
Have you ever been in a foul mood and not really know why? I know I have. I have found myself on occassion just feeling irritated by the smallest things., things that would never normally get under my skin and I have been left wondering why after I have a bit of a ‘fly off the handle’ moment.

So now I drink nut milk and I thought you guys might like to know more about why to switch and how to milk a nut…
Food waste is a global epidemic that lands over 9 billion kilos of produce in the rubbish yearly. Some governments have started making changes to laws and regulations to reduce this but really, not enough is being done. The fact that so much of the waste is due to ‘ugly’ food (food not deemed ‘good looking’ enough to make it to the store shelf) is just mind blowing. Really, when did we, as a population, become so shallow?
I love to research things about health and nutrition, particularly if it is about something that may affect me. I noticed recently that many of the conversations I was having with girlfriends over coffee related to hormones and in particular hormone imbalances.
